I have or had Windows 98 SE, I was going to reformat my hard drive and started this process. Screen came up and told me that Hard Drive had to be compressed first. So I started the compressing process. PC scanned for errors and found errors that had to be repaired first. So I scanned disk and repaired errors. Went back into the compressing process and got the same message, that errors were found and had to be repaired. Every time I scanned for errors, it said there were none. So a friend was going to reformat hard drive from floppy start up disk. He used one that I had made before. But reformat was done. Now I cannot reinstall Windows. Put in my Windows 98 disc with floppy and tried to re-install. Kept gettting message saying bad name. So now I have nothing. Any suggestions???
